Martial Arts Movies with the Most Fight Scenes

If a martial arts film has more than a dozen brawls in it, I'm including it.

Counting fights is a matter of personal discretion, but in general, I'll consider a scene if it includes at least some semblance of back-and-forth choreography (no one-hit knockouts) and lasts at least ten seconds. Montages composed of short matches count as single fights.

Because I'm not as well-versed in Asian cinemas, I've included mainly North American films for now, but feel free to mention any other qualifiers in a private message.

Thanks a bunch, DeathViperKhan, for helping me with the tallying!
